No re-jetting is required for them, as long as you do not do an ear-shave.

Usually not. Depends on how the bike runs, though. If it starts easily and doesn't require a lot of choke, doesn't surge when cruising, and has smooth transitioning to WOT from cruise, then you're fine. You should check your plugs after 100 miles- there should be some brown to grayish tan deposits. White is too lean and black is too rich (in general.)

good to know i plan on keeping the ears so my son has a place to rest his feet when we cruise the hood he is only five so i dont dare take him out into traffic on the main roads but i do let him ride along the back streets some

i marbled mine and then put on cruzers.. i felt like it wasnt running right and had it re-jetted per V&H recommendation to 142 on the main.. It runs MUCH better now. A little lower on the gas mileage but its worth it

after i put the cruzers on i actually when to only 2 turns on the air fuel and it ran fine but i think i might be running too lean at 2 turns so im going back to 2 and 1/2 with the new engine
